Nadal also dropped out of Rome and it is getting more and more complicated for Roland Garros

Rafael Nadal seems to be running a race against time. With each passing day, his chances of being present at Roland Garros are fading, due to an annoying injury that has already made him miss almost the entire European brick dust tour: after missing Monte Carlo, Barcelona and Madrid, the Spaniard announced this Friday that he will not be able to be in Rome as of Monday, another of the iconic tournaments of his career. In this way, if he were to be able to play in the Parisian Open, he would do so without playing any previous tournament.

“I am very sorry to announce that I will not be able to be in Rome. You all know how much it hurts me to miss another of the tournaments that have marked my professional career,” Nadal posted in a video on his social networks to explain his absence at the Foro Italico. “Despite having noticed an improvement in recent days, there have been many months without having been able to train at a high level and the readaptation process has its times and I have no choice but to accept them and continue working”, completed the 14-time champion of Roland Garros.

Nadal has been suffering from an iliopsoas injury since the Australian Open in late January. At that time, it was speculated that the recovery would take eight weeks, but the evolution was not as expected, the pain in the area persisted and the times were stretching. One by one he was ruling out tournaments until now, skipping Rome, a contest where he won the title eleven times. Even before leaving Madrid, he acknowledged that he had changed his treatment because the method chosen at the beginning had not given results.

Absent in the Italian capital, Nadal’s goal now remains to play at Roland Garros, which will be held in Paris from May 28 to June 11. Where he forged the greatest feats of his career, the Spaniard will have an additional challenge, as he will go looking for his 15th title and 23rd Grand Slam without playing tour matches since January.
